as an opportunity to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between our nations. >> rand paul, the man with a plan. >> i call the plan trust but verify. >> republicans look at what went wrong in 2012. >> when republicans lost in november, it was a wake-up call. >> the war in iraq 10 years later, the budget that refuses to die. >> our budget plan reduces the deficit without raising taxes. >> the republican plan is the same baby with a new diaper. >> we know tt until recentl president obama and israeli prime minister netanyahu enjoyed what can be politely described as a somewhat strained relationship. on april 7 of last year, the "new york times" reported benjamin netanyahu and mitt romney enjoyed a warm relationship. almost one year later, the israelis have given obama a medal. they appear to be on the same page on iran. >> diplomacy and sanctions have not stopped iran's nuclear programs. diplomacy and sanctions must be augmented by a clear and credible threat of military action. >> we will do what is necessary to prevent iran from getting the world's worst weapons. >> will this story have a happy ending? >>
in the house are saying the debt is no immediate crisis. well, you go nuts, because john baner and paul ryan just proved it. they're not only ryan rhinos on the cries but they're in bed with the president ignores this constitutional crisis. mark is on the phone with us right now. what do you make of this? >> it is extremely frustrating if you're an average citizen watching this. last year when you count fiscal operating debt and unfund liabilities, it wasn't 1.2 trillion. it was 6.9 trillion being spent we don't have. and even hear something pundits circling the wagons saying this isn't a fiscal debt crisis yet. what dot we have to do become cypress or greece for people to recognize this? we have tens of trillions of dollars in unfunded entitlement obligations. even the ryan budget does nothing with respect to social security. on obamacare, in the ryan budget takes the taxes and repealing obamacare. what is happening is the complete integrity of our financial system is being called into question. we have the fed printing day and night to provide the monetary support for these fiscal polici
paul offers an immigration plan. >> there is no one reason we lost. our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we were not inclusive. >> the chairman of the republican committee. why did mitt romney lose in 2012? the republican national committee did some homework on the question. it was an autopsy that involves -- involved contacting more than 50,000 people. they did not need a study to tell them president obama owned the minority vote. charles, your reaction to the study? >> i would not have used the word "autopsy," as it applies to a corpse. we still have the gop, althought it is somewhat in a coma, but it will recover after eight years of liberalism. the one thing the rnc had to look at is what it did wrong. it should not be leading the party about ideas or ideology. that is the job of the leaders in the party and the candidates, but it should have done the nuts and bolts -- the outreach, the social media, the kind of ground game that obama had and republicans did not. it was lacking, and that is where it needs to recover, otherwise the game will be uneven from here
in washington kentucky senator rand paul has spent 2013 raising his national profile. first it was the 13-hour filibuster. then a big cpac speech that helped deliver a straw poll victory. and today senator paul is wading into the immigration debate in a big way. putting his support behind a path to legal status for millions of illegal immigrants. joining me now for the daily fix, chris cillizza, msnbc contributor. and managing editor of postpolitics.com and charlie cook, msnbc political analyst and founder of the cook political report. and charlie, i'll go to you first, we'll get chris to chime in on this. i was taken aback that rand paul went out on this limb to a degree, because he was really setting himself up as the right-wing presidential candidate. this separate 0ing up a flag on the immigration front. that someone like a tom tancredo did in 2008, could exploit rand paul if they wanted to. >> it could, but i'm looking at it on the first level, is that this is a remarkable speech. here we have the person who has become pretty much the most important tea party figure in the entire country.
republicans also voted today again for the paul ryan budget. democrats are very excited about that because they plan to use that vote against republicans in campaign ads for the next election. we have the one and only ezra klein here momentarily to sort out what's important about what they just voted on in congress and whether we just avoided one of the cliff slash ceilings clash crisis congress now schedules for us every few weeks and whether the way they avoided this next one is itself important. there's a lot going on in the news. we have a lot ahead. we begin tonight with late breaking and rather surprising news from the democratic leader in the senate, senator harry reid. following two days of angry response from california senator dianne feinstein, she had been very publicly disappointed and angry harry reid was not going move her assault weapons ban to the senate floor as part of the democrats gun reform package. after two days of defiant reaction from senator dianne feinstein and supporters of gun reform and vice president biden made an appearance with mayor michael bloomberg deman
in the same tonal scale. if you look at cpac, i want to talk about the straw poll a little bit. rand paul won with 25% of the vote. marco rubio, at 23. rick santorum at 8 and chris christie at 7. i've maintained, and you're a national political reporter. the enthusiasm in and around rand paul is a coalition that is more dynamic than almost anything else the gop has. what are the implications of that in the next couple of years? especially as you have folks like jeb bush and chris christie. trying to move the country to more moderate and progressive in the lower-case "p" sense of the word. >> in covering ron paul, who of course rand paul is going to inherit the energy and enthusiasm from ron paul, you saw the biggest crowds, the most diverse crowds and the youngest crowds. that's what rand paul is going to capitalize on. should he run and it looks like he will run. i think over the last months and weeks you've seen obviously a split between the establishment and the tea party folks. rubio can't decide which one he is. rand paul, however, is very, i think solid and comfortable with his brand an
is as much a priority as actual legislation. in these days no one is playing the game better than rand paul whose top priority seems to be positioning himself for 2016. in a speech in the hispanic chamber of commerce paul put him squarely in the middle of the debate. >> immigration will not occur until conservative republicans like myself become part of the solution. that's why i'm here today to begin that conversation and to be part of the solution. i think the conversation needs to start by acknowledging that we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. if you wish to live and work in america, then we will find a place for you. >> michael: okay, sounds like he wants to find a way for undocumented immigrants to become citizens, well, not so fast. afterwards paul backpedaled saying while he wants to allow undocumented immigrants to stay he didn't want to pass citizenship. he said candidate we just have reform and then refer to it? wow, great way to say. representative yarmoth. what is happening with your fellow kentuckian rand paul, is this coming down to a path to citizenship?
governor mitch daniels who is now running purdue university for imagine this, paul, the students. he's holding tuition costs in for the next two years and cutting spending, freezing raises for senior senators, deans on the professional staff. now, imagine if the obama administration felt the same responsibility to manage the federal government in the same way. >> a sequester for the university. all right. jason? >> this is a miss for new york governor andrew cuomo who wants to extend the temporary tax increase on high income earners in the state after promising to let it expire. for the second time extending that temporary tax increase. do you think voters would learn after a while they're being played here? apparently not. out in california governor jerry brown sold californians on a temporary tax increase for high income earners in his state. i guess the blue state liberals never learn. >> paul: bret? >> briefly a hit for pope francis off to a fantastic start and i think this is obviously true for catholics and even as a non-catholic you see a pope getting out and mingling with peo
of paul line situation where even though it's going to be in the bill, i wonder where the bill is going to get 60% and jam the action in the house. it's got to action or the house won't act. >> chris, the problem with the house majority, the republican majority is that, first of all, it's highly difficult to move those right wingers. they are all from safe districts. and so it is difficult to put pressure on them. i do think, however, it would be possible to embarrass john boehner into at least staging a vote. i remember president obama in his state of the union speech, don't the parents of newtown deserve a vote? don't the children of newtown deserve a vote? so let's at least force the house into an up and down vote on this bill. >> sam, will that work, that kind of an appeal? >> yes, it will work because a number of house republicans who ran in 2010, including some in pennsylvania, obviously representative griffin from staten island and representative peter king as well from new york. >> delaware county. >> exactly. >> they have to be careful. >> they do have to be careful. they have

afternoon. the house republicans have passed another pointless paul ryan budget, about to curbing gun violence, they are virtually silent. >>> those who adhere to the ideology of rejecting israel's right to exist, they might as well reject the earth beneath them or the sky above, because israel is not going anywhere. >> think about newtown. think about newtown. >> they should do a real background check on everyone. >>> congress just has to get some courage. >> i'm really ashamed to see that congress doesn't have the guts to stand up and make a change. >> it's time for the political establishment to show the courage your daughter showed. >> this is part of the lively debate that we talked about. >>> friendship photo ops. >> i have to say we arranged for that, because it made me feel at home. i wouldn't feel comfortable if i didn't have at least one heckler. >>> there are critical conversations going on today about this country's foreign policy, the direction of its economy, and the security of it is citizens. the president is in israel, where he delivered a major speech calling again f
announcement. this is significant. expected soon on the immigration debate. we're awaiting senator rand paul on the stage any moment now at the hispanic chamber of commerce. wait until you hear his headline. good morning, everybody, senator john cornyn from texas. we're live here at "america's newsroom." we have a busy day. martha: good morning, bill. i'm martha maccallum. senator rand paul throws his support behind a path for citizenship for the 11 million so illegal immigrants in america. >> we're trying to add teeth to the bipartisan plan. we want to make sure border security is in there. as conservatives we always worry, you will give them legal status and say we give border security later, it never comes like so many liberal promises. what we're asking for is, every year we get to vote on whether the border is becoming more secure. all immigration reform is dependent on those votes. congress gets to vote. not the administration report. congress gets to vote whether or not the border is secure. bill: that is one senator who is making headlines for a couple weeks now. kelly wright live in
leaders meeting right now in fact as we await a major vote this afternoon on paul ryan's budget plan. that would set out to balance the budget for the next 10 years, expectedpass in t will likely face stiff opposition in the senate where democrats are putting out their own plan. oklahoma senator tom coburn says he wants to see the cuts that make an impact. >> it's a matter of adjusting priorities. we waste a ton of money in lots of areas throughout the federal government and what we have failed to do is to give flexibility to all these agencies to, they know what's important, what's not and we've chosen not to do that. harry reid on the senate floor decided not to allow votes to do that. bill: we'll see whether or not they pick and choose real soon. senator kelly ayotte out of new hampshire has a big voice if this. we'll talk to her about the efforts to cut wasteful spending in programs she says should go. that is coming up shortly. martha: we have brand new fox polls out this morning about budget and taxes. look at numbers. people were asked what bugs you the most when paying your t
face as their teaching workforce is graying. economics correspondent paul solman was back on campus, part of his on-going reporting, "making sense of financial news." >> when my doctor or my wife tells me i ought to stop, i will stop. >> solman: 75-year-old former george washington university president stephen trachtenberg still teaches public service there. >> you guys are all working well togetherm and that's wonderful. >> solman: at george mason university, 71-year-old writing professor don gallehr is still teaching too. >> if the kids are happy and learning and i'm happy and learning, i'm here. >> solman: and how long does 69- year-old boston university particle physicist larry sulak plan to keep blowing up protons? >> i have no idea. shelly is a good model. >> solman: that would be his 80- year-old colleague, nobel- winning physicist sheldon glashow. and when do you intend to retire? >> that i don't know. >> solman: america's work force is graying, and academia along with it. professors over 65 have more than doubled since 2000. some 40% of all workers say they'll work past 65.
with israel's new governing coalition sworn into office today. >> ifill: paul solman reports on older workers in academic institutions, professors in the classroom long past age 65. >> am i keeping track of jobs? yes. that's okay. as long as i'm a good teacher, that's what's important. >> woodruff: and we examine the republican national committee's call for a new direction for the g.o.p., a road map hoping for a rebound in 2016 and beyond. >> ifill: that's all ahead on tonight's newshour. >> major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: moving our economy for 160 years. bnsf, the engine that connects us. >> and by the alfred p. sloan foundation. supporting science, technology, and improved economic performance and financial literacy in the 21st century. >> and with the ongoing support of these institutions and foundations. and... >> this program was made possible by the corporation for public broadcasting. and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. >> ifill: today's supreme court arguments pitted a national law against a 2004 arizona voter registrati
-term budget deficit and the house is poised to take up congressman paul ryan's budget tomorrow. joining me right now republican congresswoman marsha blackburn of tennessee. i want to start by showing everybody the new poll numbers. both sides have taken a hit when it comes to the budget hit. 67% disapprove of the way the president has dealt with the budget. 79% disapprove of the republicans on this. people at home think it's just absolutely ridiculous. will those numbers push both sides to find a compromise before it's too late, before the numbers continue to go down any further? >> you. thomas, i think you're right. they do want to see a resolution to this and what they're wanting to see a resolution to first is the out of control spending. get this out of control spending under control. and that's what we hear from both sides of the aisle, from our constituents, regardless of whether they're democrat, independent, republican, libertarian, you name it. they say, washington spends too much. you don't have a revenue problem. you have a spending problem. get it all under control. that is wha
? >> i think the architects of the war. addiction cheney, paul wolf wits, none of those gentlemen served in their generations in vietnam. but they were really quick to send my generation into a religious civil war that had nothing to do with 9/11 and had no weapons of mass destruction. >> i want to bring you into this. >> their families, when they hear about today's news, but yet this other side where it is almost untalked about in the beltway. why have most forgotten? >> i think there's a tendency for people to avoid the subject. it then raises the question, if it was a police take to go into iraq and i believe that it was, in retrospect given the absence of weapons of mass destruction, then it begets the question, did those 4,500 or so die in vain? that's a hard question. people don't want to answer that. i'm surprised by the polling data today, that says that roughly 38% of americans still think it was the wise move to go in when you break that down by rs and ds, roughly 60% of republicans who still believe that it was necessary to go into iraq. for what reason? i don't know. given th
'm going to talk about rand paul with you for a moment. yesterday at the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce, let's listen to that. >> we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. >> if you wish to live and work in america, then we will find a place for you. >> now, there is one word that's an omission there. he does not mention the word citizenship. do you think he's parsing and picking his words wisely so not to put off conservatives? >> well, i think that rand paul has done a wonderful job of doing just that, alex. being nuanced in whether he's talking about drones, tax reform -- he's always been very nuanced to make sure he has -- and people starting to realize a wider vision for his own political career and that's exactly why he didn't mention specifically pathway to citizenship. what's interesting, though, prior to that a.p. story i can share with you that the chatter was he was going to talk about pathway to citizenship. so i might -- you know, the big question is, did he back away from that after he heard the chatter and heard that individuals were not welcoming it in the
% of the vote. here's your first morning's dish of scrambled politics. republican senator rand paul talked about immigration reform to hispanic business leaders saying immigrants are an asset to america, but he didn't get very specific about his solutions. >> i think the conversation needs to start by acknowledging that we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. if you wish to live and work in america, then we will find a place for you. >> when the senate votes on the democratic budget resolution this week, there may be a number of amendments voted on. vote a rama may include democratic amendments on the environment or republicans trying to substitute the house budget plan. >> and cool under pressure tuesday during his state of the city address when a man rushed onto the stage, threw down a flag and started yelling. security wrestled him to the ground. the mayor said it happened so fast he didn't have time to be scared. >> and the trip to israel has released this official trailer. let's take a look. >> we welcome president obama to israel. >> the bonds between the united states and

on monday that endorsed comprehensive immigration reform and on tuesday rand paul of kentucky gave a speech to the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce in which he sold his proposal for immigration reform by insisting that latinos are natural republicans. >> republicans have been losing both the respect and votes of a group of people who already identify with people of our beliefs, family, and conservative values. hispanics should be a natural and sizable part of the republican base. but they are steadily drifting away from the gop in each election. this says more about republicans than i want does about hispanics. defense of the unborn, defense of traditional marriage are republican issues that should resonate with latinos but have been obscured by the perception that republicans are hostile to immigrants. >>> so the rand paul calculation there is interesting because i think everybody thinks about rand paul as a possible 2016 candidate. there's this question was he seeing an opportunity get to the right of where the establishment is because that's where the space is much as mitt romney got to

. the byphrenia of how the state operates and the people themselves, and then the rand paul and yourself and mitch mcconnell and possibly ashley judd replacing -- it's an odd place to be right now. it's a hot bed politically. what do you see is the trend there these days? >> well, you know, i think what we are seeing in kentucky is a lot of the disconnect that we seay cross the country that when you ask people how they feel about a particular issue like -- >> hal: obamacare? >> yeah, if they want to -- i can talk about obamacare in a minute but if you want to touch social security, medicare or medicaid, or defund education, they'll say we don't want to cut the entitlement programs, we want education paid for and so forth and so on and then they vote for the people who want to do the opposite. >> hal: yeah or in the case of rand paul eliminate the department of education. >> yes. i have become kind of the avatar for ashley judd even though i don't think that is accidental or that she wanted me to but people in kentucky tend to vote with people who they feel comfor

. congressman paul ryan says his budget would balance without raising taxes. senators will vote on both proposals tomorrow. here is a key senate republican on democrat murray's budget proposal. >> significant time that our colleagues have produced a budget, i'm glad they have. but it is a disappointment in the sense that it, in no way, alters the debt course we are on. they claim it is balanced. they have said balanced over 50 times already in this debate. and, yet, that budget does anything but balance. >> i should note the house passed paul ryan's plan today with all republican votes. zero democrats voting for it, shep. >> they didn't wait in the very last second of the very last day. what in the world was wrong with them? >> that's right. they pass the house passed a senate continuing resolution or cr as it is known. the house democratic leader nancy pelosi says it wasn't perfect, but it was important. >> the first vote on the cr was about substance. the second vote on the cr was about keeping government open. we want to remove all doubt that whatever our disagreement on some of thes
paul's filibuster to argue the conservatives are somehow winning now. and he took a swipe at senator john mccain. >> we did have a certain eminence grize of the republican party describe rand paul and me as wacko birds. >> we wondered whether senator rand paul could corral straw poll supporter. he clearly did. the libertarian senator scored with conservatives looking toward the 2016 race. winning the straw poll with 25% of the vote. very close second there. marco rubio at 23%. no other candidate, though, in double digits. for cycle after cycle, the republican party has been rewarding the next guy in line with their presidential nomination. but for the first time in a generation, the party has no front-runner. could mean a crowded field. this weekend the potential candidates were already jockeying for position. wisconsin governor scott walker, among the weekend's more popular speakers, admitted he has white house ambitions to politico saying, quote, would i ever be interested? possibly. i guess the only thing i'd say is i'm not ruling it out. for me it's really a measure of what i've

to speed on american. senator rand paul. >> i think the legislature is about ten years behind the public. i've introduced amendments to quit sending money t and build bridges here in the united states rather than in egypt. 90% of the people agree with me 80% of my senate disagree with me. bill: do you agree with rand paul on that? >> it's a little more complicated than that. he is correct that the senate is not as responsive to the will of the american people as it should be. for example it continues to spend too much, another point that senator paul has made. on the other hand people in political office need to be leaders as well and they need to explain why, for example, we send military assistance to egypt. we want the egyptian military to you supportive of u.s. policy. when they buy american equipment, when they receive our help they tend to be more supportive of our position. the egypt leader is trying to play both side. if the united states withdrew awful its assistance i'm not sure he wouldn't flip over to the wrong side. it's more complicated than saying we shouldn't send aid to cou
